How to set all folders to List instead of the default Icon View.

Folder using Icon View

You have your nice new XP machine up and running, and you have several items in  "MY DOCUMENTS"  However XP by default displays a rather large icon for files etc. often many of these are off the page and you need to use scrollbars to get to them.

The solution is simple!  Change all your folders to display in the "List" mode rather than the default "Icon" one.  Here is how.

On the menu bar, select View/List
On the menu bar, select Tools/Folder Options/View tab/Apply to All Folders
Click on OK to confirm
The change will take place the next time you open any folder.
